Summary

James Grippando's crusader Jack Swyteck is back in his sixteenth adventure, a timely and pulse-pounding thriller.

Miami attorney Jack Swyteck lands in the heart of the contentious immigration debate when he takes on the heart-wrenching case of an undocumented immigrant who fled to America to protect her daughter and save herself, in this timely and pulse-pounding thriller that explores the stories behind the headlines from New York Times bestselling author James Grippando, winner of the Harper Lee Prize for Legal Fiction.

Julia Rodriguez and her teenage daughter Beatriz escaped bloodthirsty gangs, random violence and, Julia's abusive husband back in El Salvador. Arriving in Miami, mother and daughter struggled to carve their own piece of the American dream. While life in the States is hard, it is safer, until Julia's rejects her boss's unwanted sexual advances. Suddenly--thanks to an "anonymous" tip to U. S. immigration authorities--she is arrested, locked in detention with criminals, and slated for deportation. Jack's only viable legal move to save her is asylum--a long shot that's become nearly impossible in today's charged political climate.

When Julia and Beatriz made the perilous trek north to freedom, they thought they'd left the danger behind them. But now, even Miami isn't safe. A ruthless enemy may have tracked them to south Florida and is biding time, patiently waiting to strike.

In a case where the stakes have never been higher, Jack Sywteck may not be able to save his client--even if he wins.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "A woman living in Florida illegally is turned in to the immigration department by a man bearing a grudge. The woman is put into a detention center; her teenage daughter barely escapes and hides out at her aunt's house; Jack Swyteck, the lawyer who's toplined Grippando's series of smartly written legal thrillers, hears about the situation from his grandmother and signs on, free of charge, to help get the girl's mother released. But here's the problem: the mother is making accusations that are very hard to prove, against people who have very strong reasons for wanting certain secrets to stay buried, and Jack's own safety, not to mention his family's, is soon in jeopardy. Grippando, a former attorney, has the legal stuff down cold, and his writing style is impeccable (he won the 2017 Harper Lee Prize for Legal Fiction for Gone Again, a Jack Swyteck novel). This would be a perfect time for legal-thriller fans who haven't yet checked out this series to join the crowd.--David Pitt Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Julia Rodriguez, an undocumented immigrant from El Salvador, works as a barista in a Miami café, in bestseller Grippando's timely 16th Jack Swyteck novel (after 2018's A Death in Live Oaks). When she refuses the sexual advances of her boss, he reports her to ICE, and she's soon arrested by ICE agents, but her daughter, Beatriz, a ninth grader, avoids capture. Attorney Swyteck takes on the challenging task of securing Julia's release from detention and reuniting her with Beatriz. Julia had fled to America to escape her abusive, gangmember husband, Jorge, but he soon followed her to Miami and will stop at nothing to get her back. Grippando keeps the narrative moving forward at a steady clip, expertly interweaving each character's point of view into the plot. He brings to life the fear undocumented immigrants face every day, as well as the complicated legalities they confront when arrested. Still, he never forgets that this is a thriller, and Jorge's ruthless momentum keeps the tension building to a heartracing climax. Agent: Richard Pine, Inkwell Management.
